This one is causing excitement at farmers’ markets. Carrots have bright purple skin and flesh that comes in shades of yellow and orange. Spicy and sweet-tasting roots are great for marketing.

Review:

I have grown these carrots for the last two years and they are wonderful and easy to grow. Even when I let them get too large, they were a fine carrot. Two years ago I threw the late fall (overly large) harvest in a sand pit and covered it with leaves and an old door and they kept beautifully all winter. Folks love the color and it looks cool in salads - they are a fine tasting carrot as well.

What are the pros? color, taste, germination

What are the cons? size variation

Review:

Grew these last year and had a great crop. Excellent germination rate. Some of the carrots did not grow large, perhaps due to areas of overcrowding (planting tiny seeds is difficult), but most did very well. Minimal splitting.

Review:

I have grown this variety for 2 years in a row along with 8 other varieties of carrots. I have difficulty getting the seeds to germinate. They grow very slowly compared to other varieties and are very prone to splitting.

Review:

My kids loved these carrots better than the orange ones we grew. They liked that they were a different color and would pick them, wash them off with the water hose, and eat them up! I'll have to do a larger crop this fall so I can have some to can. They grew super straight and tapered and were so much easier to clean. Just don't peel them or you lose the purple color! However, these have a thinner peel than the orange ones do so not a problem here!

What are the pros? Delicious, spicy, beautiful

What are the cons? Easy splitter

Review:

I love this delicious and beautiful carrot. But I'm sad to let it go this year because the weather here is too erratic and extreme to grow them. These split so badly compared to other traditional varieties. A good portion of them looked like a hideous monster from the 80s horror movie the Thing. Once they split, they made great homes for all kinds of slugs, rolly pollies and earwigs. I'll be growing a more hardy and less exotic carrot from now on because of our lousy climate. Our soil and weather is pretty bad, so I would still recommend this carrot to anyone else who has even slightly better conditions.
